The theme for NTU-GDAP 2022 is Sustainable People, Inspiring Change. Developments in science and technology have accelerated at record speed, which significantly changed living standards but, at the same time, brought in complexity demanding more resources. The recent report by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that human activities are causing changes to the climate that are “widespread, rapid, and intensifying, and unprecedented in thousands of years”. The pandemic has also intensified challenges that we are facing, such as inequality, poverty and domestic violence. It is imperative that we focus on building more equal, inclusive, and sustainable economies and societies to tackle our global challenges. This competition seeks imaginative works that critically reflect on the impact of technological developments and scientific advancements on humanity and art as a way to engage conversations to galvanise change in the Anthropocene.
The NTU-GDAP is open to any interdisciplinary team with science-art-technology expertise, 18 years of age or older, from any country. Works submitted must showcase creative appropriation at the intersection of science, technology and the arts. Projects must not be more than three years old or otherwise, must showcase newness, that have significant updates or further developments in the past three years.
Submissions close 15 June 2022
